"Samara the three door hatch from Lada that leaves the competition behind for style and value.
Aerodynamically profiled with low waistline and large glass areas, Samara shows its sophisticated Porsche influence combined with proven Lada performance and durability.
Value is everything and Samada values everything. Behind the wheel, you'll believe this car was designed for the driver, in any passenger seat you'll know it was created for comfort. The fuel sipping Samara has been tested in the world's toughest climates from minus 40 degrees Celsius to the seating heat of deserts.
You'll find it so responsive, so quick to stop, so easy to handle, so forgiving that you can forget most of what you've heard about front wheel drives. Value is everything with Samara"
